To: Our US Soldiers
From: Your Commander in Chief
Starting this week, when you wake up wanting to know whether there's a breaking report of violence in the area you're headed for, remember not to visit the New York Times site. If you try you will see a warning and your unapproved attempt will be logged.
And if you or your local commander want to make any strategic use of the information our allies and enemies have gleaned from the WikiLeaks site, you'll have to violate Air Force regulations and federal law to view it.
Or figure out how to get to one of the hundreds of new WikiLeaks mirror sites I'm not blocking yet today.
You may even have to flip on Al Jazeera English on a TV -- which I hope you don't mind me saying, has a better record for accuracy than Fox or CNN anyway.
We've simply got to teach a lesson to the New York Times - along with WikiLeaks, Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, The Guardian, the top 25 international news publications, and investigative journalists everywhere - even if we have to abuse our own soldiers to do it.
I'm sorry if avoiding all these information sources endangers your lives. You knew when you signed up there would be collateral damage.
